As the Global Coronavirus (COVID-19) unfolds, we are here and prepared to support the disruption to our students’ learning.
The health and safety of our community is our priority, therefore, we have provided additional online learning to support students during this period.
Avoid falling behind, seek proactive measures to support your child’s learning.
If you would like to see how this could work for your child, we can provide a live demonstration to show how effective online learning can be.
We recommend using a laptop or a PC with a cable internet connection, as this provides the best experience.
It’s important to note that a cable connection is preferable to a Wi-Fi connection. The reason for that is that Wi-Fi is less stable than a cable connection. While the connection speed requirements for our virtual classroom are relatively low, your connection needs to be stable, as falling below the minimum at any point may cause interruptions.
If you don’t have the option to use a cable connection, please stay as close as possible to the router. This ensures that your Wi-Fi will maintain a stronger signal and hence minimize the possibility of disconnections while in the room.
Regardless of the type of connection you use, it is best that you close all programs that may use your internet connection. These may include the following:
Skype, Viber, Discord, Whatsapp, Messenger (or similar instant messaging/calling software);
BitTorrent, uTorrent (or similar torrent clients);
Other programs that may take up a great amount of system or connection resources.
It is also advisable to open the virtual classroom in a separate browser window with no other tabs active. It is best to close all other browsers and tabs in order to avoid other tabs using up system resources.
You can enter Virtual Classroom by following an invitation link. The tutor typically sends one to all participants when opening the room. Alternatively, your tutor may choose to send you the direct link to the room. Either way, you can click the link or copy and paste in a new tab in your browser in order to enter the virtual classroom room.
We are taking extra precautions to ensure our centres are clean and safe for our students and staff. We have increased the level of deep cleaning and continue to maintain strict adherence to our rigorous standards of cleanliness and sanitary procedures in our centre.
